About this show

N (as in Bonaparte) is a phantasmagorical work for theater centered on the figure of Napoleon in his final years of exile on the island of St. Helena. Guarded by 2,000 British soldiers, surrounded by sycophants, toadies, and an unforgiving sea, and plagued by rats, the Little Emperor confronts his legacy and crafts his future legend. This passionate new work is poised at the intersection of madness and genius, war and peace, prison and freedom, imagination and dread, legacy and legend.
